I am a writer of poems short stories and short articles on the feeling of nature.
One day, it was very scary for me
Men are mortals. No one can hold it. So too has my life moving towards death with every moment.
In the busyness of life, I forgot that one day I could die.
But that day I can feel it ---
I went to the office on Monday for my daily work. Get off the bus and walk about 500 meters to the office.
As usual, I got off the bus and walked to the office. A 12-wheeler truck stopped on my way.
I thought I could cross the truck to go and try to cross to the right side of the truck at the same time a big bus came in front of me. I didn't know what to do and my heartbeat increased immediately. Because the distance between the bus and the truck was only about 1.5 feet and I stood flat to save myself. My mind was blank at that time. My parent's and my brother's images came before my eyes.
That day was so horrible for me. I will never forget this day and that time in my life when I faced death.
